Symptoms of PTSD and major depression in Latinas who have experienced intimate partner violence.
Issues Ment Health Nurs. 2010 Feb; 31(2):119-27.IM

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to describe symptoms of PTSD and major depression in abused Latinas and to explore the relationships among intimate partner violence (IPV) experiences, these symptoms, and health related quality of life (HRQOL). The rate of PTSD was 69.7% and of major depressive disorder (MDD) was 57.6%. The comorbidity of PTSD and MDD was 54.5%. PTSD and MDD were not consistently correlated with IPV, although some significant relationships were found. PTSD and MDD symptoms were highly correlated with HRQOL. The impact of PTSD and MDD on psychological well-being and functioning in Latinas needs further investigation.
